Cross Keys will be playing for pride in the British & Irish Cup when they take on Connacht on Saturday.
Last year's beaten finalists have failed to recreate their form in the competition so far this season, slipping to defeats to Newcastle and Newport so far this season. As a result, they are now unable to qualify for the quarter finals.
Greg Woods names a strong side for tomorrow's clash despite their situation in the pool.
Keys back Luke Ford returns in the centre following a few weeks out with a shoulder injury whilst exciting young prospect Scott Matthews is given a rare start at open side with skipper Rob Nash rested on the bench.
Dorian Jones again starts on the wing for Keys with Kristian Baller being troubled by a hamstring problem. Also set to return after a spell on the sidelines through injury is prop James Johnstone who is named on the bench.

Nearly 40 players were involved in the first Wales Under 18 training session of the season. WRU National Performance Manager Gethin Watts is excited at the potential shown by the group and expects the Regional Under 18 Championship to hone their skills even further.
